First Offerings presents a selection of works by foundation honors painting students. These comprise work done by students from the Design, Fine Art, Illustration and Cartooning departments who are enrolled in the SVA Honors Program.
It has been my pleasure to work with these students during their foundation year. This show represents the first efforts by these students as they develop the skills and techniques that will carry them into their chosen career paths. These paintings, selected and offered for the event by the students, show the range and diversity of the art produced over their first year. I quote my colleague Peter Hristoff when he says, “Our students are awesome.” I believe this show confirms that sentiment.
